Writepad Stylus

Writepad Stylus


Writepad is made specifically for stylus handwriting on a tablet. Useful for math and science classes where typing isn't an option!

Requires Android 3.0+ tablet. Tested on Motorola Xoom and Asus Transformer. Make sure you have a stylus that works on your tablet first - these should have a soft rubber tip.

Galaxy 10.1 owners: You must have root on your device and use TouchScreenTune (free app that fixes your touch screen sensitivity). Otherwise the writing will lag.

Features:

Smooth writing experience: no lag and no jitter between the stylus movement and the screen response.

Smart palm detection. Only records the writing from your stylus, not your hand.

Export page and notebook: share the page as PNG file to any app (such as Evernote). Export the whole notebook as a zip file or PDF file.

Paper type: comes with four familiar paper types.

Stylus calibration: Instead of drawing where the stylus touches the screen, it will draw where you *think* the stylus tip is. Good for those thicker tip styluses.

Create and manage multiple notebooks. Just tap the icon in the upper left corner.

New features:
* Flip view. Are you accidentally hitting the android system menu all the time? I am. Now you can flip the tablet over!
* Custom pen color / size / transparency.
* Lasso erase. Draw a closed path to erase everything inside it.
* Full Zoom: hold the zoom button enables pinch zooming to any magnification.
* Typing mode. Click the T icon to start typing. Click again to go back to writing mode.
* Import images from SD card.
* Import from web. Use the mini browser to go to the site you want, then hit OK to import it to your page. Then you can draw on it.
* Auto-scroll button. Located above the zoom button - this will automatically scroll from left to right, and then to the next line.

By far the best notepad app out there! Just add a way to organize notepads alphabetically, and it's PERFECT!

Decent app Works well on my nexus 7 2012. The flip view option is a great idea, and palm rejection works better than any other app I've used. However, I would like to see the ability to have wider pages, and the ability to move around the page while zoomed in. For now, the limited width of the page is a deal breaker. The calibration option is cool, however it does not significantly improve my writing when I tested trying to trace a line in a different app.

Takes up 1/4 of the screen. Time for a refund.
